Instagram Virus Used in Marketing Scam

Instagram is extremely popular and a great, free marketing resource for those who can build a worthwhile following. Those with large following can turn a profit by posting ads for businesses that mainly pay for access to the account’s community. A recent virus has made it possible for people to bolster their status and more readily appeal to businesses by buying a fake following.

The virus is a repurposed credit card information stealing program that generates “likes” and followers on Instagram. People with high “likes” and followers draw the attention of advertisers and sell face time with their community to them for high sums of money, making Instagram a lucrative market. With this virus, people buy 1000 “likes” for $30, and/or 1000 followers for $15, through online forums and then use the stats to trick advertisers into buying ad time on their account.
